Another Day

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The world was never my oyster
at best a broken toaster
just enough to burn your fingers
when you try to take the slices
pleasures can’t be vices
a maze that’s full of mice is just
another day at the races
so many faces so little voice
and every thought’s a choice between
living and existing
and all the while
a hidden smile insists on
persisting.

Turn that frown upside down–

then let the tear-waters rise
until you

drown

  1. Great words ~ while it is a dark poem in one sense, it is also an uplifting one as well as how can you beat “The world was never my oyster at best a broken toaster…” This brought a great smile to my face ~ cheers to a great week.
